Lama Jigme Gyatso
Boundaries are Crucial - 12nov21
Contrary to popular belief
boundaries do not separate us from others;
they separate us from that which is unsustainable.
If someone, who we consider a friend,
does something to us that we find harmful,
then it falls on us to tell them plainly
that what they did was unacceptable.
Do NOT give reasons,
do NOT go into story.
Their ONLY acceptable response
is apology, humility, and contrition.
If after setting a boundary
they violate it;
then, quite simply,
they are not your friend.
And for the sake of sustainability,
you must remove yourself from their presence.
Like Anakin Skywalker forsaking sand.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported
not by monasteries but by students
as such the production of these livestreams,
blogs, and class materials is supported
by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers
just like you.
